Community Health Needs Assessment
Improving the health of the community has always been central to the St. Luke's Hospital mission. St. Luke's is proud to partner with community members and local organizations to do just that. In 2013, St. Luke's initiated a formal Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to better understand and address the most pressing health needs of our community. Based on research and feedback, we selected the following three focus areas:
- Obesity and Sedentary Lifestyle
- Cancer Screenings & Support Services
- Prevention of Chronic Conditions
While we have chosen to prioritize those areas in our outreach efforts, we continue to offer resources for a wide range of health needs. We are fortunate to be part of a community where there are numerous healthcare providers and non-profit agencies to address the variety of needs.
In 2016, we published our next CHNA. The process offers us an opportunity to continue focusing on ways to make a difference in our community's health each and every day.
